Do you have some overripe bananas lying around. This recipe calls for roasting them, intensifying the flavor - I guarantee one of if not the best banana muffin you've had #muffins   #breakfast_recipe  
This is from my book, 750 Best Muffin Recipes, with just a few minor changes. I have been really utilizing this book lately. This recipe is from the Global Muffins chapter – recipes for globally inspired muffins. The inspiration for this muffins is the small Central American country of Honduras. Anyone who likes tropical flavors …

You may have noticed the blog has been a little quiet the last week or so. Well an accident with a liquid beverage and my laptop had me in food blogger hell. Well, I have received a loaner until I wait to see if my info can be restored. If not, so many photos from planned posts will be lost forever:( Lots of recooking to do:( until then wanted to share this post with you from last year around this time. This is the perfect ‪#‎onepotdish‬ from the multi cultural French and Dutch island of St. Maarten/Martin If you try it, do let me know how you liked it
Sint Maarten – St. Martin is a unique Caribbean island under two different governments. One side of the island is Dutch and the other side is French.

Optimization (SEO)  - 
 
I switched to Wordpress just a month ago and there are so many plug ins available. Just wanted feedback on what WP experts think are the best SEO plug ins. I currently have All in One Seo and use Sumo Me (came highly recommended from SEO "expert") for social sharing, etc. however I was just reading that Yoast is highly recommended and wondering if I should switch from All in One to Yoast. Then others say Jetpack is the best...a bit overwhelemed

Please help this Wordpress newbie!!!!

I have  HUGE amount of leftover Thai Basil from a class and I don't want it to go to waste. Anybody have any recipes posted I could try that requires more than just a few leaves? Maybe a sambol?

Thanks - just concerned the anise flavor of Thai basil might be overwhelming in a pesto

This is the best supermarket in the NYC for Latin American food products - every type of Peruvian pepper paste you can imagine. A large variety of cremas and cheeses from all over Latin America including Ecuadorian Cayembe, my fave. Dried blue corn for making Peruvian Chica Morado or Mazamorra, plantain flour, plantain leaves, lucuma, blue corn tortillas. large selection of dried and fresh chiles and a great produce section. Gallina - hard fowl and the list goes on. Any ingredient you need for Latin cooking can be found here

This restaurant is the kind of place you want to come back to again and again. With a small bar and only about 28 seats, it has a neighborhood feel to it. If I lived in the area, it's definitely a place I would stop by on my way home from work for a quick beer and pleasant conversation with locals. The food is amazing. Portion size is perfect. Ample, but not oversized like many American eating establishments. Traditional Columbian food - the shrimp ceviche is definitely a must and they have a wide selection of South and Central American beers - Tona, a Nicaraguan lager was so refreshing on a hot summer day. It's bright and crisp, with no bitterness at all. Of course, being a Columbian restaurant, they also have lots of coffee based drinks and to end your meal, the tres leches cake is perfect - not too sweet and not too wet, it's the best version I've ever had.
